Alfa Romeo has unveiled the 33 Stradale, a modern reimagining of the classic 1960s model, marking a significant step in their transition to becoming an all-electric brand. The gasoline version packs a mid-mounted twin-turbocharged V-6 engine, churning out over 620 horsepower. Power is channeled to the rear wheels through an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and an electronic limited-slip differential.
Conversely, the electric variant boasts a remarkable 750 horsepower, though details on its wheel-drive configuration are yet to be disclosed. Nevertheless, both versions can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in under three seconds and hit a top speed of 206 mph. Braking is equally impressive, with a 62 mph to zero stop in just over 100 feet.
Echoing its predecessor’s design, the modern 33 Stradale retains its coupe style with abundant glass surfaces. It’s also equipped with eye-catching butterfly doors, granting access to a minimalist cabin blending retro and contemporary elements. Buyers can choose between two interior styles: the conventional Tributo design or the performance-focused Alfa Corse.
Only 33 units of this model will be made, and all have been snapped up. Alfa Romeo plans to produce these cars using the coachbuilding method, incorporating a carbon-fiber tub and aluminum subframes, likely sourced from the Maserati MC20. The MC20 shares similarities with the 33, employing a twin-turbo V-6 engine and 8-speed dual-clutch transmission, with an electric powertrain in the pipeline.
Renowned for their work on the 2013 Alfa Romeo Disco Volante, the esteemed Italian coachbuilder Touring Superleggera will take charge of production. Contributing to the enhancement of the car’s track performance will be Valtteri Bottas, the Formula 1 driver for Alfa Romeo. Although the price of the 33 Stradale has not been disclosed, it is anticipated to surpass $1 million.
